PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The Delaware Blue Hens will play their final home game of the season on Saturday afternoon as they welcome Stony Brook to Newark.

The Blue Hens are coming off a 21-17 home loss to Albany. It was Delaware's third loss in a row and dropped the Blue Hens to 4-6 (2-4 Colonial Athletic Association) on the season.

"It's very disappointing for everybody obviously," Delaware head coach Danny Rocco told KYW Newsradio. "We're playing well in moments of the game. In the biggest moments of the game though, we're not playing well enough to win. We've kind of found different ways to come up short."

Redshirt freshman running back Will Knight rushed for 79 yards and a score in defeat. He also had 61 yards receiving on a pair of catches.

Stony Brook will bring a 5-5 record into Saturday (2-4 CAA). The Seawolves have lost their last two. This past week Stony Brook lost at home to Towson, 31-14.

"They're a physical, physical team offensively," Rocco said. "They are really good at running the football, and they've gotten better here at some of the (run-pass options) and the play-action passes. Got good receivers and big o-line and hard running backs. Defensively, they are pretty disruptive."

Last year, these two teams met at Stony Brook with Delaware dropping a 17-3 decision.

Saturday's game in Newark will kick off at 1 p.m.
